Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

She's a beaut!!! Bet you can't wait to take her out on the road. I think you could be on to something here that could save our youngsters from obesity, not to mention entice sedentary adult gamers to get out into the open air and burn some calories-have you considered patent options and marketing strategy?

Say that doesn't seem very nice. The man is only asking for feedback on his new build. I advise you to follow the golden rule- Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

That being said, perhaps I should take back my "diarrhea" comment on that guys white saddle post... or at least apologize for it.

- the proper electronic hobbyist term would be kludge.

- and a Sony PSP would be a better choice, as it has a clip-on USB GPS...

:-)

p.s. PSPs rawhk, mon!

Nice build. I love the 2x4 mount.......one question though. That 2x4 by code must be treated lumber! I assume it is or the building inspector will make you tear it all down.

Get a tandem so you can go multiplayer, would certainly spice things up!

Even though I don't know you Beef, you have just become my favorite BF poster. This thread makes me want to play more Zelda Twilight Princess. And Pikman.

Hilarious. But I wouldn't want to try to get that duct tape off the handlebars.

hey, where do you see a trainer?

i think it's a leap from the usual iPod, but i think it would work better with Shimano brifters, because i'm sure that someone can modify the flight deck controller to work with a game cube controller...
